A few favorite animal-related animations…

The Hedgehog in the Fog – just one of the animated shorts (a classic from 1975) that is part of my discovery of the world of animation. Here are a few of my favorite animal-related animations that use animals to mirror the human condition so hilariously and poignantly. Check ’em out! Coming next, my conversation with award-winning journalist Charles Siebertabout elephants, whales, chimpanzees, and empathy-building in education…

About naturestage

Miranda Loud is the Founder and Artistic Director of the non-profit NatureStage based in Waltham, MA, and is an interdisciplinary artist - classical singer/organist/filmmaker/photographer and environmentalist. She writes about the vital need for education to include a more heart-centered approach to studying other species that leads to a sense of stewardship. Naturestage creates works that foster empathy and kinship with other species, using the emotional power of storytelling in different art forms, mainly film, photography and music. She is also a public speaker on art and social change. Her current projects include The One Language Project, Park Dreams, The Elephant Project, and Elephantasia which all use different art forms to encourage a mind shift in how we relate to other species by asking "How would the world be different if we viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? If, instead of drawing lines, we drew circles?"
